I don't about anyone else, but I like this kid. He runs a friggin' 4.3 40! If we got him that would mean guys like Ricardo and even Santonio couldn't fumble plus in his profile (http://www.nfldraftcountdown.com/scoutingreports/wr/yamonfigurs.html) it says he raced Devin Hester and beat him! We need a little help @ WR so even though he is not Steve Smith, He could still be a good WR at the next level.

Here is my mock steelers draft(rounds 1-4):
1. Paul Posluszny-releasing Joey+Haggans' age=Poz
2. Brian Leonard-Could compliment Willie in a big way
3. Josh Beekman-I think the Steelers will take a OG early because of Simmons moving over to play Center
4. Yamon Figurs-Incredible speed, could be used in kick return game.

he sounds like a vicious returner just like hester...hester was like a 5th round pick lol

He is also the best gunner in the draft... but that might not be an area of need with the signing of Chidi.

I don't know 5'11" 174lbs, one good lick and theres a memorial patch on the uniforms :lol: The speed is great but its not everything, especially if hes afraid of contact and drops to many balls.

poz is not what we need, we need a pass rusher, poz is not a pass rusher, and he'd be a middle linebacker in our system

i wouldn't mind taking this dude, however i still have faith in willie reid........

I believe that if Willie Reid doesn't make a significant contribution this season it will be his last in black and gold. Understand he was hurt last year. This is a new year and if he stays on the injured reserve list this year I believe he will be gone next year. You got's to play....if you really wanna stay! :lol:

Weaknesses:
Does not have great bulk and is a bit frail...Drops too many balls...Needs to run better routes...Still pretty raw and needs to work on mastering the nuances of the position...Not very physical and doesn't like contact...Durability is a concern.

We have one of those already..

Yeah 5'11" 190lbs. but Hester is a DB not a WR. Big difference bro. Besides if we draft him we won't get your punter...whatshis****inname? :banana:

Thats cool but being half DB :lol: he knows how to give and take a hit. not like this other guy who is supposedly scared of contact. Its all good Koop, everybody has their wish list.....:tt02: :tt02: :tt02: :tt02: :tt02:

I mean I haven't seen anything of Willie Reid + speed kills. With Poz, I mean I have followed his career rather close at PSU and he has just been a great football player. PSU was not just a 4-3 they did run some 3-4 so he's a stranger to the system. I just think Poz is the best linebacker in this draft and we need someone with his desire and fire to win.

but he was move to the middle last year....not what we need....i do agree that hes a hell of a player....but theres alot of great players we could get with the 15th pick.....not many of them are what we need though

actually, cornerbacks can be soft too, look at deion sanders he was soft, and hester idolizes sanders.............

i'm not knocking his skill, and i think he'll be a very good player in the nfl, however, he is not the pass rusher we need, we need someone to rush the qb at will, poz can't do that, tim shaw has more career sacks then this guy......... anthony spencer would be a much better fit for us

Right and you never know about this. Last year, everyone had it penciled in that we were taking LenDale White, this year I'm seeing either Jarvis Moss, a CB that we don't need, Lawrence Timmons, or Adam Carriker. So, you never know, we could trade down and nab Spencer to save cap room to re-sign Troy.

i knew we werent gonna draft white.....i wouldnt have minded white but i didnt think we were gonna draft him. Santonio surprised me, but only because i didnt think he would be there when we picked.....i promise you we will not go CB in the first round....there is no way, Spencer or moss all the way. Timmons...eh, doubt it, Carriker....i would be pissed.

I would be furious if we got a corner in the first
